Welcome to this forum.

Many things cause fruits to be not set. Do the plants get enough sunlight?, are they fertilized properly. Too much nitrogen will cause blossoms to drop without fruitset. Lack of pollination could also be a problem. Do this: shake the stem that bears the flower every morning (this will enable polliation. Cut down on nitrogen(if you are using a high nitrogen fertilizer). Ensure the plant gets good sunlight.

Hi GG,

Does adding fish fertiliser in the soil or fish emulsion spray help in fruit production? I believe it is high in nitrogen but I keep reading from net that lot of tomato growers loves to feed this to their plants. Any comments?
